After the Serbian parliament lifted the state of emergency, Prime Minister Ana Brnabić stated tonight, that Serbia still can’t declare victory over coronavirus, but that we are close to it, which is why the Serbian government proposed to lift the state of emergency.
Speaking at the parliament session at which the state of emergency was abolished, Brnabić said that the next happiest day for her will be when the flags, which are now at half-mast, are raised again because that will mean that there are no more human victims.
The Prime Minister expressed her gratitude to the citizens who have adhered to the restrictive measures, to health workers and institutions that have been fighting every day to maintain the health system and save the lives of the elderly citizens.
It seems to me that we can look all together back to those two months behind us and say that in the future we will not be ashamed of this period. I think we will be able to be proud of how we fought and how we put human life above everything, and not politics and the economy, Brnabić said.
According to her, the Serbian government will continue the practice of full transparency and communication with all media in order for citizens to receive accurate and timely information.
The most important thing for us is that Serbia starts working again, with all precautions, and to ensure rapid economic growth. We must continue to fight together, and the success will depend on each of us individually, Brnabić concluded.
